Pra.NTED FOR F. AND C. RIVINGTON, St. PauL's-church-yard. 




TT^. HE Compiler of the following Index, equally 

Jl defirous of communicating pleafure and informatioft 
to the Reader> has endeavoured in its execution to adopt 
that plan which appeared moft likely to convey a fum- 
mary and comprehenQve knowledge of the valuable mate- 
rials difperfed throughout the Annual Register. For 
this purpofe he has coileded from the various parts of the 
Regider (whether contained in the Chronicle or Ap- 
pendix, or under any particular head or title) whatever 
has been faid on that head or title, and placed it under 
the fame ; (o that the R.eader may fee, in one conneEied and 
umnterrupted view, whatever has been recorded or faid on 
that particular fubje6t. For inilance, any revolution which 
has taken place in any country (as in Denmark^ Ruffi^i 
or Sweden) or sny occurrence in any foreign country, 
(as France^ Spain , &c.) v/ill be found under the titles 
Denmark i France, Riiffia, Spain, Sweden, bic. in the HistorV 
OF Europe -, the firft figure denoting the volume, the fe- 
cond and following figures the page and pages of the 
volume. — Thus, alfo, every difcovery in, or obfervation 
upon. Natural Uifiory, UJeful FrojeUs, &c. &c. contained 
in the Regiiler, is arranged in alphabetical order under . 
Natural History, Useful Projects, &c. &c. the 
volume, and the pages of the voluiTie, being to be found 
according to the abovementioned direclions. 


To elucidate this hiftcrical part of the Annual Re-i 
gifter, the Reackr is referred to tlie end cj ihe Sixth 
Volume, where he will find the following Maps : a neVf- 
Map of the Seat of War on the Coasts of Malabar 
and CoROMANDEL, in the Empi.^e of the Great Mogol; 
a Chart of tb.e Seat of War on the CoaRs of FRANCEi 
Spain, Portugal, and Italy, with the adjacent Coafts 
and Iflancls in the Ocean and Mediterranean Sea; a 
iiew Map of the British Dominions in North Ame- 
rica, with the limits o( the goz-ernmefifs annexed thereto y^ 
by the late treaty of peace, and fettled by proclamation, 
Odobcr 7th, 1763. 

With refpecl to England, every occurrence, political 
and parliamentary, relating to the pifolic tranfaftions ci£ 
this counrrv, as connefted with other States, is placed 
wnder the titles England and E77glijh Parliament ary, in the 
History o? Europe ■■, whilit every article which relates 
to the /;//<7r;s'^/admin;{iraLion or domefLic occurrences of 
this kinfydom in general, and of London in particular^ 
ii comprifed under the head of Chronicle and ths 

The figures contained '-ithin crotchets [ ], ol' within 
crotchets and afterifics [ * ], refer :o the articles in the 
former part of the Regifter; viz. I'nz History of Eu- 
rope, the Chroniclp, Appendix to the Chronicle; 
and the State Papers : and thefe crotchets and afterifks 
have been faithfully attended to and prcf^rved in the 
Index. The remaining parts of the Regifter, beginning 
vith Characters, are ^vrnttdi 'without thefe crotciiets and 
afterifks, and therefore they have none in the Index, 
unlefs v.'hen any cf thefe arricles are brought from the 
Chronicle (which is diftinguiihed by crotchets) and 
placed under one of thefe general heads. 

4 The 


The utility of referring to proper names of perfons 
^v/hether authors or others) is very obvious, as it greatly 
facilitates the mode of finding out any article, and is 
more eafily remembered than the fubjefus to which t\itic 
names relate. It has therefore engaged a particular fhare 
of the Compiler's attention, efpecially in the article Cha- 
racters, fo as to form an eafy accefs to this valuable 
repoiitorv of the manners and cuftoms of nations and of 
individuals, whether ancient or modern, barbarous or civi- 
lized. Pagan or Chriftian. 

Such is the plan which the Compiler has purfued. 
He has endeavoured to execute the work with accuracy, 
and has omitted no article worthy the attention of the 

Additions to the Preface to the Second Edition, 

From the rapid fale of the Firft Edition, he is in- 
clined to hope, that his labours have met with a candid 
reception in general. Widi a viev/ to make this Second 
Jidition more worthy of public favour, he has corre6led 
feveral errata of the prefs, which appeared in the Firfl 
Edition, and has made lome confiderable additions in 
various parts of the Index. At the fame tim.e he begs 
leave to obferve, that any hints for improving this, and 
rendering another edition (if neceffary) more perfeft, will 
JDe thankfully received by the Publifher, who will take 
(pare that they fliall b^ attended to and inferted. 



Advertifemeni to the 'Third Edition. 

/Ifter the Second Edition of the Index has been out 
of print for nearly feven years, the very frequent inquiries 
for it has induced the Editor to be at confiderable expence 
in making the prefent edition more worthy of the patronage 
pf the Public than the former editions. In order to ac- 
complirh this, the Second Edition has been revifcd en- 
tirely ; fome redundancy of language has been abridged i 
no article has been taken away, though fome have 
been removed to more appropriate titles and clafTcs, and 
the difficulty arifing from many that might be fearched 
for under various claffes is obviated, by making double 
entries. In the claiTcs of Marriages and Deaths parti- 
cularly, very great additions are made : in the former, the 
name of the Gentleman only was ^iven in the alphabetical 
arrangementj another alphabet under the name of the Lady 
is now added: in the latter under the fliorr note, "N.B. 
<« For a further account of the Deaths, fee. the latter end of 
** every month, throughout every volume, as they hap- 
f* pehed,'* on examination more than eleven hundred nam^es 
had been omitted under this fhcrt apology. Thefe are now 
added. The Editor trufts, that from the various im- 
provements in the prefent Edition, that muny perfons, 
■who may poUefs a fonrier edition, will, on a careful 
comparifon of their refpeifrive merits, be induced to 
countenance thefe labours, by fup^rfcding its place in 
the library by the prefent Publication.
